Book Review - Spring Fever by Emma Davies

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
 
Review by Suze
 
Merry and Tom have started a new adventure. They are now the proud owners of Five Penny House and have left the hectic life they used to lead behind them. They want to spend time with Robyn, their baby, and they're going to open a shop. The house needs some love and attention, but it's amazing and there are plenty of hidden treasures for Merry and Tom to discover. That their home might be cursed won't be a problem for them at all, or will it?
 
Freya and Tom are working hard to restore Appleyard to its former glory. Their love makes them want to work for it, but there are always setbacks and there's one thing they can't control, the weather. Will they be able to achieve their goals? And what will happen to Freya and her best friend Merry when back luck is about to strike, will they survive their difficult starts of the year?
 
I'm a big fan of the Tales From Appleyard series. Emma Davies writes about wonderful caring people who are working hard to make something of their lives. Both Five Penny House and Appleyard are interesting welcoming settings and I fell in love with them straight away. Because of Emma Davies's colorful descriptions it was easy for me to picture Merry's stunning discoveries and Freya's love for her orchard. She makes their daily life fascinating and lively. There's always something going on in the worlds of the two best friends. I love everything about the cozy atmosphere and the determination and spirit of the characters.
 
Love and friendship are important in Emma Davies's stories and that makes them heartwarming and welcoming to read. I admired how Freya and Sam are there for Merry and Tom when they need them the most. It brought tears to my eyes to see how much they care about one another. It's what I enjoy about this series the most, the strong connections between the main characters. Emma Davies writes about them in a moving and compelling way. I love her stories, they're charming, captivating and entertaining. 
 
Advice
 
I'd recommend you to read the stories of the Tales From Appleyard series in their correct order. Merry Mistletoe is an amazing strong beginning and it will be a great choice to put on your Christmas reading list.
